tell me what you see…


I bet if you’re a mom to a little boy you see a beautiful bouquet of flowers – lovingly selected and picked with care (roots and all).  I bet if you’re a mom you can imagine grubby little hands with dirty fingernails and the sweetest, most innocent and pure, smile conceivable as he proudly presents his thoughtful gift. 


I bet if you’re a mom you couldn’t imagine a more perfect offering.  I bet if you’re a mom you understand why a simple gift of what you once thought of as only “weeds” could bring tears to your eyes, create a lump in your throat, and make your heart swell with love. 


I bet if you’re a mom you know exactly what I’m talking about and, if only for this reason –this moment, you are thankful for gifts that grow with abandon in an empty lot next door…and a little boy who has such a sweet, pure, giving heart…and moments that remind you of how lucky you are to be a mom.  his mom.  I bet.


  1. I know exactly what you mean! I got a lot of these when my youngest was little. Just melts your heart. Thanks for reminding me of this! He is 9 now and actually still brings me flowers, but he now convinces his dad to buy them at our local farmer's market!
